I don't understand why moderators shut the DFA 21 post and not this one which is totally irrelevant...
I do, but its not flattering.

Closing the DFA 21 thread was the right call. I'm not sure I'd keep this one open either.

It looks like the thread was started by me and it was derailed by people talking about smartphones, which has nothing to do with what new Pentax cameras Ricoh might make. Then, other people chimed in with smartphones stuff. SFT was initially talking about his wish for new medium format camera, he just reacted to the camera phone thingy claiming you don't need more than a phone to be a good photog, I don't consider neither of us hijacked the "what Pentax camera might be next? Speculation".
This just shows that a person can hijack a thread that they started.

I tried to get back on the subject in post #273, and the next few did also, but this page is back to blathering about other subjects.
If people would post only about what they expect of cameras, then this thread still would still have a reason to be open,
but blathering about bikes or closing this thread are not reasons themselves to keep it open.

Everyone should talk to the moderators directly through the triangle-! or stay on the subject.

Meanwhile I will follow my own advice and be quiet unless I respond again on the subject.

As an aside, This is at best another strawman.

So the number of pages dictates the open or close of a thread...
I think there wouldn't be more than 5 threads on this forum...

You are missing the point. Read deeper. Look up what "drivel" means if you need to.

On several occasions I have personally alerted the mods using the triangle-! that there is a problem with a thread’s wandering.
Do not assume that the mods discover them using stats or just ‘happen’ to come across them.

Looks like the thread is wandering into a sidetrack discussion about how far down a sidetrack a thread should wander before someone alerts the mods. Someone should alert the mods.

As far as I know, about three cameras are about to be released or completed.
Another camera is under planning.

That would total 4 body designs in about a year.
That could happen if they are related, so the engineering effort were shared amongst the bodies.
